Hockey violence? Hockey violence comes in two forms; firstly is a fight between two willing participants and the second is controlled checks against the boards or mid-ice. The alternative is either assault, like in the case of McSorly or Naslund, or something that lands you a penalty. Two consenting adults engaging in a fight under scrutiny and rules isn't necessarily violent, like in the UFC, etc. I know that physical action in sports could be argued as violence, but I strongly believe that the intent is different, and in most cases, intent is everything. As well as purpose served. A fight or brawl at an airsoft game has no purpose.
